(Several injured in chain reaction collision)….It was reported on Highway 111 at Jaspar Road at 9:00 am Thursday.
The California Highway Patrol says 39-year-old Roxana Real of Imperial was driving a Nissan southbound on the Highway, in the number 1 lane. They say Real noticed traffic ahead of her driving across the stalled Volkswagen of 21-year-old Julie Anne Bruns of Mexicali. Traffic would not allow Real to change lanes. The CHP says the Nissan came to a stop behind the Volkswagen. As she was for traffic to clear, Real told the Highway Patrol she noticed a black vehicle approaching from behind. The vehicle moved into the #2 lane, and she saw a red corvette behind rapidly approaching. The corvette was being driven by 28 year old Mario Alberto Ibarra from Imperial. Ibarra was unable to stop in time and the corvette collided with the Nissan. The Nissan hurdled forward and struck the Volkswagen. Ibarra suffered major injuries. Real suffered moderate injuries. Brun was not injured. A 4-year-old child in the Corvette suffered minor injuries. All were taken to El Centro Regional Medical Center for treatment. Southbound Highway 111 was closed for a period of time. Traffic was detoured at Heber Road.
